I went to the National Aeronautics Museum (Museo Nacional de Aeronáutica), and I checked the roundels on the planes for the proportions. They appeared to be three concentrics circles of radiuses 1:2:3. Inner and outer circles are light blue (traditional argentine celeste), middle circle is white.

Fin flash

[FAA fin flash]
Dov Gutterman, 08 Oct 1999

Both Fuerza Aérea Argentina and Comando de Aviación Naval Argentina uses a square variant of the national flag as fin flash while the sun is replaced by a proeminent yellow/gold dot.
Dov Gutterman, 08 Oct 1999

I checked the book [whe86] again and also some photos of FAA planes and it sure look like a darker shade of blue. Using a darker shade is probably to make the symbols (roundel and fin flash) more visible.
Dov Gutterman, 10 Oct 1999

Well, I checked another source and it seems «The aircraft roundel has the same colors as the national ensign. (...) The fin flash is a miniature of the national flag and includes the “sun of May” marking in the center commemorating the country’s independence in 1810.»
Dov Gutterman, 10 Oct 1999

Album 2000 [pay00] says in a note that the national flag is painted on the fin.
